Advancing Policy Priorities for Industry Supporting Ticket Agents and Traveler Choice

[Arlington, VA] [August 23, 2023] – The Travel Technology Association (Travel Tech), the voice of the travel technology industry and consistent advocate for public policy that supports a competitive and transparent marketplace, announced Sabre Corporation has rejoined the organization as a board member. Sabre Corporation is a travel technology company based in Southlake, Texas. It is the largest global distribution systems provider in North America.

“I am proud to welcome back Sabre as a Travel Tech board member,” stated Laura Chadwick, president and CEO of Travel Tech. “Given the resurgence of interest in travel post-pandemic by both consumers and policymakers alike, our advocacy on behalf of the travel technology industry has become all the more essential to empower traveler choice.”

Global distribution systems (GDSs) are the travel industry data networks that connect service providers (airlines, hotels, cruises, car rental companies, tour companies) with travel agents. Through real-time, automated transactions, these companies help consumers book more than 60 million hotel rooms, 50% of all flights worldwide, and countless cruises, car rentals, and tours. These companies also provide IT services to airlines, airports, hotels, and other hospitality organizations.
